Fake zoo has okay air conditioning

The kids had a blast.

I promised the kids that the people I was with and I would visit the zoo while the people I was with and I were on vacation visiting their Grandfatherrents… Unfortunately, I did not realize howoverheatedit would be down here. Every afternoon, the kids would ask if the people I was with and I were going to the zoo today & I kept putting it off, hoping for a least 1 afternoon where the heat index fell below 100. As the dates the people I was with and I were to leave got closer & closer I felt terrible that I had lied to my young kids however there was no way I was going to walk around all afternoon, outside, without any air conditioning. I told my mom how I was feeling & she came up with an idea. It seems there is an exotic pet shop just out of city that sells all kinds of reptiles & even a few mammals like monkeys & lemurs, & such. And, it is air conditioned! My mom advocated the people I was with and I go there & tell the kids it is a small zoo. I did not like the plan of lying even more to my kids but I did not want to disappoint them either so I called ahead to make sure the kids were welcome & after that I loaded up to “look at the pets”. The kids had a blast. The pet store employees were so patient & they let the kids hold a few of the calmer reptiles. They also got to pet some doves & even a baby skunk. I loved the pets too however my favorite area was the nice cool air coming from the air conditioning vents. Of course, I gave each employee a nice tip for being such superb “zoo” handlers.
